Foyth's first goal for Tottenham enough to sink Palace

Mauricio Pochettino thinks Harry Kane’s obsession with scoring can work against him

Crystal Palace have no fresh concerns ahead of Tottenham meeting

JUAN Foyth struck his first ever Spurs goal to seal a battling away victory for Mauricio Pochettino's men at Crystal Palace this evening (Saturday).

Tottenham Hotspur defender Juan Foyth had an uncomfortable debut in the Premier League last weekend but his second game in England's top flight went a whole lot better. Townsend gets in behind the Tottenham defence and stands the ball up for McArthur, who heads square to what looks like a Kouyate tap-in, but Lucas arrives at the last minute to make a vital interception. The latest to join the list were Colombia centre back Davinson Sanchez, who injured his hamstring in the Champions League in midweek, and England right back Kieran Trippier, who hobbled off injured midway through the first half against Palace.

Without even hitting its stride this season, Tottenham is firmly in contention in the title race. "This is one of the toughest stadiums to play in". Under strength, good in spells, nowhere near their best - yet still some how coming away with three points. And yet, nearly under the radar, he took his tally to 10 from 15 matches in all competitions on Tuesday with the late goals that secured the 2-1 Champions League win over PSV Eindhoven. I am a little bit jealous of the players because, come on: to be in a changing room like this or a stadium like this is fantastic.

"It's been a massive effort from the players and staff", said Pochettino.
